Volkswagen Officially Completes Porsche Purchase


VW has finally completed the sale of Porsche for €4.46 billion ($5.6 billion US). Volkswagen now owns 50.1% of Porsche SE and can add them to the growing VW family including Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Seat, and Skoda.

VW CEO Martin Winterkorn was quoted saying: "The unique Porsche brand will now become an integral part of the Volkswagen Group. That is good for Volkswagen, good for Porsche and good for Germany as an industrial location".
